escapees. matthew hey chapman alerted the place. he spotted their stolen white van in san francisco. a short time afterwards authorities arrested the two fugitives. the third inmate who originally escaped with them, he turned himself in a day earlier. the homeless man, mr. hey chapman, he says he is hoping to use that money to rebuild his life. and also to help two young grandchildren who are now in foster care. airline secrets you need to know before you take your next flight. that's the topic of the dr. oz show today. pam cook with more on the spots that have the most germs and how to stay healthy when you fly. >> important. and i think you might be surprised when you hear which spot is the germiest on a plane. >> the headrest was the dirtist part of the plane. >> yes. the headrest. why? because according to airline safety experts, people put their dirty heads on it. they drool on it. they sneeze on it. unlike the tray tables that can
7:46 am
be easily wiped down, that headrest does not get cleaned. dr. oz says there are some other things you can do to help keep the germs at a minimum. >> get the air vent above your head and while you're cleaning it, turn it on and aim it at your chest. want to create an air silo around yourself. you don't want somebody coughing three rows away to sneeze towards you. it will keep your face clear of other stuff that would come at you. filtered air is better than the stuff that would naturally wander towards you. >> dr. oz has an insider who will give the honest truth on what happens on board the plane between flights. the reality is these planes are moved in and out so quickly, there really isn't time to properly clean them. his advice, if it's not wrapped in plastic, blankets, pillows, earbuds, it's not clean and you shouldn't use it. the dr. oz show is right here on
7:47 am
ktvu at 1:00. so more things you might not want to know but should know. >> the headrest? that makes sense. >> i have been really cleaning, bringing the wipes on and cleaning the tray table and everything so i wouldn't have thought about the headrest. the air vent is a good tip as with. >> it seems every time i fly i end up getting sick during my trip or right after. who knows what's to blame? if i can prevent a little bit of it. >> try. yes. >> good it to know. the headrest. >> thank you, pam. 7:47. san francisco is buzzing about some expensive coffee. they are selling a special blend that goes for $15 a cup. the particular type of coffee is grown in panama. this is the first harvest. the company says it's tough to grow but the result is a unique experience with melon and jasmine. they sold out in a matter of
7:48 am
hours. and coming up "the 9" we are putting our taste buds to the test. we have secured a small handful of the grounds. sal, you and i and mike mibach are going to see if we can taste the difference between that $15 a cup coffee, the beans i buy for my family and the newsroom coffee which is free. >> you know what? if i cannotle tell the difference -- cannot tell the difference, it will say something. >> the thing is about you or the coffee? >> it will say something about me. it's like, well, okay, you might like the fancy stuff. i don't need it. i don't need to pay more for something i won't be able to tell the difference between. good morning, everybody. another shameless plug for gasia and my show "the 9". right, gasia? that's what we do. let's take a look at the commute now. traffic is going to be not too bad, but it's getting a little
7:49 am
better at the bay bridge. the street closures should be down by tomorrow. in fact, they should be down by tonight on the embarcadero. but i will go ahead and plan for tomorrow. tomorrow for sure. tonight embarcadero southbound is scheduled to be re-opened. yesterday all the stuff was gone. i think at this point it's a matter of removing those barriers and opening it up to traffic again. moving along and taking a look at some of these other commutes. 880 northbound the traffic is still a little bit slow. it's getting slower up to downtown oakland as you drive through the area. i want to mention in morgan hill southbound 101 at bailey avenue still have that crash, but northbound is going to be slow because of people looking at the other end of the freeway. the south bay commute is normal. and if you are driving on 880 slow from 238 to steven son and fremont. 7:49 back to steve. >> if you don't nail the station coffee i will be disappointed. that is the worst of the three.
7:50 am
>> yeah. i think i will be able to tell what the station coffee is. >> thank you, sal. let's get to it. well, dave, our ship came this. our boat came in. there we go. they do this to me every time. we need to play jimmy buffett. or sail on sailor by the beach boys. go ahead. >> ♪ saul on down the line . >> lionel richie. >> ♪ half a mile or so don't really want to know where we're going ♪. >> here's the deal. if my buddy dirk is watching, he will know exactly what this is. he used to have a 42-footer in alameda harbor. we used to go all the time to the estuary. he'll know. if you know, please let me know. son of a sailor. sail on by the beach boys. that's my suggestion. here be go. sabrina says, steve, you should

8:03 am
on all the approaches to sunnyvale and super and mountain view. san mateo and dumbarton bridge improvement. earlier problem on the san mateo bridge. you might be wondering why hayward city streets in downtown are such a mess. that's because the traffic on 92 was so bad it started making traffic downtown hayward really bad. investigators have now returned to the scene of a grim discovery in gilroy this morning. >> human remains were found near gavelin community college. that's not far from where sierra lamar disappeared in 12th. janine de la vega on the scene. there is a lot of speculation? >> reporter: there is. one of the searchers, a man who searched every week for sierra lamar with a team of people came out here because he wants some answers. he says his phone was blowing up last night with some of the searchers wondering could these be the remains of sierra lamar.

southbound and northbound and muni service back to normal. let's take a look at the bay bridge toll plaza. that is backed up for a 15 to 20-minute delay getting into san francisco. i also want to mention the san mateo bridge. if you are driving on that san mateo bridge heading westbound, it will be better than it was, but it's still pretty slow heading out to the high-rise. if we go to 237, can you see traffic here is going to be slow. all the approaches to the silicon valley are slow, but nothing out of the ordinary. and i do want to mention that the richmond bridge traffic is back to its old normal self. for a while it was a little lighter. but right now it's backing up for a pretty good long wait coming up to the bridge. it actually looks good once you make it on the bridge, but if you drive this way every day, that big backup there is going to be starting as usual. so it's going to be back, really. now at 8:18 let's go to steve. what's going to be back,
8:19 am
sal? >> the richmond bridge. for a while when super bowl was here, some people didn't want to go or it was lighter than usual. it was unpredictable. the last few days it's been back to normal. >> thank you, sir. let's get to it. a lot of high clouds over us. mostly cloudy right now. you think mostly sunny later this afternoon. a little bit warmer on the lows, as you probably could imagine because cloud cover is there. so that holds those temps up. boy, you tell you, the air has been moddedfied. that's for sure. it's mild. doesn't take long to warm up. february has been dry except for the 2nd and 3rd. it's a stretch of eight days. it will probably go out to about the 17th, probably out around there. then maybe some changes 18th and 19th. so this is it. we are a done, right? no, no, no. this has happened before and it happens during normal years. our la nina years were very strong. 1982-83 we had 22 days in a row of dry weather.
8:20 am
that began december 24th. 97-98 that began december 17. the longest stretch during a weak la nina going back to 1950-51 of 49 days. we have a long way to go. this one started in february. the other two began in december. but there is still plenty. there is some things brewing. i should be honest with you. some information you have seen coming across today. pacific jetstream looks like it wants to be strong, zonal, and the activity in the tropics is picking up. this wouldn't be until the 18th or 19th. looks like some things are developing. i am still leaning on the rain returning and in a big way. just not for the next five to seven days. rain stays north for now. heard from ronald thompson in crescent city. he had 78.5 degrees on a temperature on the 8th of february. that's his warmest february temperature i think ever, i think he said. it's the warmest stretch first ten days, just like san diego one of the warmest februarys. somebody north and south and a
8:21 am
lot of sun. some clouds. partly cloudy. mild to warm on the temps. a little cooler on the highs, yet they are still well above average for this time of year, which is closer to 59 to 64. we are looking around 67. a little bit of cloud cover holding temps down to teeny butt to the north. >> love it. >> yeah, well, enjoy it while you can. >> all right. steve, thank you. it's 8:21. as you heard steve, today is going to be a beautiful day and the golfers love it. at 8:45 we will check in live. got the to be quiet. that is bill murray. alex savidge is down there with bill murray and the rest of the stars at the pebble beach. listen up if you want a tesla but have a honda budget. how the price tag on tesla's new model may make its way into
